I would change the oil asap. But I would make sure I get a good oil sample and maybe you can find out what it is. Also get your self some magnets. Stronger the better (ebay or amazon) put these on the bottom of your oil pans (I also have them on the diffs). Dont panic before you know why your panicing.....

You just stick the magnet to the outside of the pan. As the oil goes over the magnet the metal sticks to the pan. And yes the plug is a magnet and you can get a good sample of the metal off of it. With a warranty I would get a good sample and take it in and see what they want to do.

If you've got a warranty, I'd start by reporting the problem.
